PARIS (Reuters) - Bouygues BOUY.PA said on Monday that it had postponed a proposal for Clara Gaymard, head of General Electric GE.N in France, to join the board of the French construction group.
“This decision has been taken in agreement with Clara Gaymard,” Bouygues said in a statement.
A spokesman for Bouygues said Gaymard’s nomination would be proposed as soon as possible after General Electric’s GE.N acquisition of Alstom’s ALSO.PA energy unit was completed, to avoid sparking any debate about the transaction.
Bouygues holds 29 percent of Alstom.
